Miley Cyrus shares pictures of pulled teeth
Pop icon Miley Cyrus, known for hits such as "Wrecking Ball," "See You Again" and "Party in the U.S.A.," recently shared several pictures over Instagram detailing the experience of having her wisdom teeth removed. The 22-year-old singer, who has about 17 million followers on the social media app, had all four wisdom teeth, along with another tooth, pulled in one sitting. For those that have undergone this procedure, it's safe to say the surgery can really pack a wallop on your mouth, but the singer proved to be in good spirits as she documented the experience for fans.
"'Twas in da best handzzzz doe. Nurse @cheythom & Dr. @stellamaxwell took goooood currrr of me & muah pearly whites," she stated on her Instagram account.
Cyrus posted several pictures, including an X-ray of her teeth that drew scrutiny from numerous dental professions. Various experts immediately weighed in on the health of Miley's teeth, noting a few oral health problems that may need to be addressed. TMZ recruited the help of a dental assistant to find that Cyrus' X-ray showed that she has several veneers and may have a few cavities. The picture, which was posted a day before Cyrus underwent surgery, also unsurprisingly revealed her wisdom teeth were in need of removal.
On March 25, 2015, the singer had five teeth removed, which were then displayed in another somewhat gruesome Instagram picture. The five teeth were placed in a plastic bag and at least one appears to be in pretty poor condition. The four wisdom teeth were grouped and still show some blood on the roots. Cyrus later posted a selfie with her mouth open revealing gauze covering one of the wounds. An ice pack rested on either side of her face inside a red hoodie. She also posted a similar picture with her mother in the background, who appeared to be taking care of the pop superstar in her hour of need.
Cyrus had her wisdom teeth removed among rumors that her current boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger was cheating on her while on spring break in Cabo. Though multiple sources, including Cyrus' father Billy Ray and Schwarzenegger's mother Maria Shriver, have dispelled the gossip, circulating photos of Patrick have raised skepticism. Either way, it's safe to say Cyrus has had a stressful week.
